Sadie Tucker Baskin, age 93 of Franklin, Tennessee, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, July 15, 2023, surrounded by her loving family.

Sadie was born in Smyrna, Tennessee, on June 22, 1930, daughter of Thomas and Sarah Tucker. She went to school at Smyrna High School. She married Randall Ray Baskin Sr. on June 4, 1950. She worked alongside Randall in building the success of Continental Life Insurance Company of Brentwood, Tennessee. She had a love for horses and was very involved in the Tennessee Walking Horse industry, owning Autumn Crest Farm in Franklin.

Together, Randall and Sadie were the proud owners of 2002 World Grand Champion Out On Parole. Their love for Out On Parole was evident throughout their entire ownership. They purchased Out On Parole at 19 months old, owning him for over 20 years until his death in 2018. Sadie had a bond with Out On Parole. He wanted her attention all the time, and she accommodated him. They also owned other showring notables such as Mr. Heisman and Down Town Pusher, just to name a few.

She was preceded in death by her son Randall R. “Randy” Baskin, Jr.  and her parents Thomas Henry Tucker and Sarah Fly Tucker.

She is survived by her spouse, Randall Ray Baskin Sr.; her son, Roger Scott Baskin; her son in law Joseph Andrew Cooke, her sister, Dorothy Tucker Baskin and her son Michael Eugene Baskin; five grandchildren Randall R. “Rafe” Baskin III, James Blake Baskin, Stefan Reid Baskin, Austin Reed Baskin, Trevor Scott Baskin, and their mothers, Tammy Karnes Baskin and Lisa Buchanan Baskin; two great grandchildren.
